Digital Certificate Login
The goal of this project is to extend Liferay's login system so that it supports access and authentication by digital certificate.
Use Cases #
Digital certificates are widely used in public administration to identify citizens, and it can be a valuable new feature for Liferay.
The Solution #
The digital certificate is usually stored in the web browser, so the portal should be able to access that information and open a new session in Liferay for that authenticated user.
Skills Needed #
- Required: Java, JSP
- Nice to have: some knowledge on Liferay plugins, authentication systems and certificates is a plus.
